It’s not just a job, it’s a way of life. To be a harvester, it takes long days filled with hard work. However, it’s also rewarding work if you choose to make the most of your experience. One thing’s for certain, you’ll will see and experience America’s Heartland.
If you come to work for us, we expect you to work the entire harvest season. Harvesting dates vary with the weather and the ripeness of the crops. However, you can expect the season to start in late April or early May, and it can easily go into November. With us, you’ll harvest some barley and a lot of wheat in the summer months. When fall comes, our attention turns to dry edible beans, corn, soybeans and millet.
You can expect to meet other world travelers on your harvesting experience. Over the years, we’ve had a wide array of employees on our crews. We’ve employed and enjoyed people from Canada, Australia, Ireland, England, Denmark, New Zealand, Spain, Brazil and South Africa, as well as U.S. citizens.
When you’re not in the fields, we provide clean mobile home trailers for you to live in. And when you’re working, we provide all of the food. For breakfast, there is food readily available inside the trailers that you can serve yourself. The cooks prepare the noon and evening meals. The lunch meal might be hot or cold. The evening meal is served hot – and depending on the location, weather or harvesting circumstances – it may be eaten in the field or in the trailers.
Remember, we work long hours because the harvest won’t wait. However, weather and
cutting conditions can vary a lot. These are the same two items that may warrant time off. If it rains, you might have a day off. If the crops aren’t ready to cut, you might have a day off. Most often, that’s how time off works.
